This is my first post, inspired to write after reading so many wonderful things in this forum
My LO is 15 weeks old, he is breastfed and formula fed, about 50/50. I desperately want to increase the amount I breastfeed, ideally to 100%! How do I do this, I fear I have missed the window of opportunity.
How it started:
-born at 37 weeks; surprise!
-jaundice, therefore super sleepy for a while
-horrible start to BF; bleeding, bruising, excruciating pain
-unaware of latch issues, lost 1lb after birth, advised to supplement
-have been 'topping up' with formula after every BF since then
-I am recovering from postpartum depression, almost there
-husband doesnt support BF, I'm completely on my own with this. I even go to another room to BF.
-I think LO is starting to prefer the formula bottle..
Am I too late to fix this?
I have tried to simply decrease the formula and increase BF, but he cries until I give in. I really want to do this and hope you have some encouragement and wisdom to share with me. Thank you so very much.
